I have little to no fish in my diet. I am currently taking 3000mg (3 1000mg pills) fish oil a day. Is that enough or too much?

If they are Sears Labs (or equivilent) containing PGFO with 400 mg EPA and 200 mg DHA. The recommended standard dose is 4 caps per day. Those with medical conditions may require more. If the fish oil is only a health grade considerably less is recommended because of the high levels of toxins. White Light.

Thanks White Light. I take the CR Best Buy referred to in this form. I just reread it and I think I should be taking more but how do I know haw much I should take. BLW I do not have any medical conditions.
